The treatment of mucogingival problems is one of the most challenging aspects of periodontal therapy. The insufficient or absence of attached gingiva increases the risk of the development and progression of gingival recessions. A patient with Miller’s class II gingival recession and shallow vestibular depth in the mandibular anterior region was selected for the treatment. Autogenous free gingival grafts harvested from the palatal mucosa was used to gain the width of the attached gingiva. After 2 weeks the healing was uneventful. The gingival augmentation technique using free gingival autograft led to a significant gain in the width of the attached gingiva in the treated regions. Free gingival autograft for gingival augmentation is a promising and highly predictable technique resulting in a significant gain in the width of the attached gingiva.
